Summer Camp Information

Hey Scouts,

If you are attending Summer Camp this year, please plan to attend the meeting this week.  We will be discussing everything you need to know for camp.  Parents can attend too.  

If you can’t make it, that is okay.  I will send an email to everyone with the info on Tuesday Morning.

We will also be handing out Camp T-Shirts at the meeting

Summer Camp Reminders!

Hey Scouts,

We only have 6 weeks until Summer Camp.

I NEED to get T-Shirt sizes from everyone going to camp.

You NEED to get your medical forms completed and turned in.

Summer Camp Actions!

For all Scouts attending Summer Camp this year, please make sure that you have scheduled a physical examination with your doctor and make sure to get your BSA Medical Packet signed by your doctor.  The medical packet can be found on the Troop’s website under the “Resources” tab.  The doctor needs to sign on both page B2 and C.

Also if you have any dietary restrictions there is a link to a Google Form that your parent(s) must fill out at least 2 weeks prior to camp.

Lastly, Mr. Naber will be designing and ordering T-Shirts once again.  So we need to get sizes for everyone.  If you want to have input on the design, speak with Mr. Naber.

Summer Camp Action Required!

For all Scouts signed up for Summer Camp, it is time to turn in your Merit Badge Choice Sheets.  Attached to this post is a copy of the Merit Badge Schedule, Grid (another version of the schedule), and a Choice Sheet.  Note that Metalwork appears to be a 2-session block. Please fill out the Choice Sheet with your top 4 choices for each Session.  We will do our best to sign you up for your top choices, but we need back ups in case things start to fill up.  Please bring your Choice Sheet filled out to the meeting tonight (03/25/24) and give it to Mr. Finley or Mr. Naber.  If you cannot make it to the meeting, please email your choices to both Mr. Finley and Mr. Naber before 03/25/2024.


There is not another Troop Meeting before Merit Badge sign-up, so we need to know tonight what your choices are.

If you are not signed up yet, there is still time.  I checked this morning and there are still spots available for the week we are attending. Talk to one of the Scout Leaders to get signed up.

Lastly, if you are planning to attend, we will need an up to date Medical Packet from everyone (which includes Part C which means a doctor’s signature!). So start planning on getting that done.

Summer Camp ALERT! Merit Badge Selection

For all Scouts signed up for Summer Camp, it is time to start thinking about what Merit Badges you want to earn at Camp.  I have attached a copy of the Merit Badge Schedule, Grid (another version of the schedule), and a Choice Sheet.  Note that Metalwork appears to be a 2-session block. Please fill out the Choice Sheet with your top 4 choices for each Session.  We will do our best to sign you up for your top choices, but we need back ups in case things start to fill up.  Please bring your Choice Sheet filled out to the next meeting on 03/25/24 and give it to Mr. Finley or Mr. Naber.  If you cannot make it to the meeting, please email it to both Mr. Finley and Mr. Naber before 03/25/2024.

2024 Summer Camp Potential Date Change

There has been a request to change the date of our upcoming Summer Camp at Camp Buffalo Bill in Wyoming to 1 week earlier so that Scouts who are eligible to and want to can also attend NYLT. Due to the time it takes to travel to/from camp, moving camp to the first week would make this possible.

The proposed week would be June 8th – 15th. For more details, feel free to check out the old website pages we put together the last time we attended this camp – remember this was 3 years ago, during the height of Covid, so a lot will likely change, but there is some good historical information on our visit there.

We will discuss this at the meeting tomorrow – please come with comments, questions, etc. If you cannot attend, please email Mr. Finley or Mr. Bielkiewicz your concerns ASAP as we will be booking our spot soon so we don’t get shut out. Also – please do SIGN UP asap if you think you (or your son) will be attending.
